1350-682 - Black soldier flies are common and widespread fly of the family Stratiomyidae. Neither the larvae nor adults are considered pests or vectors. Instead, black soldier fly larvae play a similar role to that of redworms as essential decomposers in breaking down organic substrates and returning nutrients to the soil/environment.
1350-686 - A Hybomitra affinis, horse fly. Horse flies are often large and agile in flight, and the females bite animals, including humans, to obtain blood. They prefer to fly in sunlight, avoiding dark and shady areas, and are inactive at night.
1350-670 - As their common name suggests, they are often seen hovering or nectaring at flowers; the adults of many species feed mainly on nectar and pollen, while the larvae (maggots) eat a wide range of foods.
1350-678 - The sponging mouthparts consist of a fleshy, elbowed labium, at the distal end of which are large, sponge-like organs called the labella (singular, labellum). The labella is a complex structure consisting of many grooves, called pseudotrachea, which sops up liquids much like a sponge does.
1350-642 - A common and widespread fly of the family Stratiomyidae, and quite possibly the best-known species in the entire infraorder. The larvae are used in manure management, for both house fly control and reduction in manure volume, and the mature larvae and prepupae raised in manure management operations are themselves useful as feed supplements
1350-634 - A Musca domestica or house fly showing a severe mite infestion; three mites under the subgenal area and two more between labellum and thorax. Those mites show a bright red colour and finger-print like texture
1350-673 - The Tachinidae are a large and variable family of true flies within the insect order Diptera, with more than 8,200 known species and many more to be discovered. Most are protelean parasitoids, or occasionally parasites, of arthropods.
